Hurry Up Chicken Noodle Soup

16 Oct

I was feeling a bit under the weather and didn’t have much energy to prepare anything involved. This soup came together easily, quickly, and with minimal effort and it certainly hit the spot.

Time: 30 minutes                   Serves: 4


  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • broccoli stalks, sliced
  • 4 cups chicken stock (or water with bouillon/concentrate)
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded chicken
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • salt, to taste
  • Mrs. Dash original, to taste
  • 1/2 cup small pasta (I used stelline – stars)

How to make it

  • Heat oil in a medium stock pot over medium heat.
  • Add onions and saute for 5 minutes. Add carrots, celery, garlic and broccoli stalks. Saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add chicken stock, chicken, bay leave, salt, and Mrs. Dash. Bring to a boil. Turn to simmer.
  • Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add pasta and cook for 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove pot from heat and remove bay leaves before serving.
